    Tell us about Cardinal

    Cardinal Sign Company was started and run by Phil Hanna until his death in 2016.  We want to run the company and continue on the legacy of Phil and Cardinal Sign Company.  Our plan is to make the most of the assets for the advertisers and landowners that have worked with him for many years.  The signs will be a great complement to many of the advertisers Grey Outdoor has in South Carolina.

    What made the acquisition attractive?
    When I first looked at these locations I wasn’t very interested.  After some time had gone by, the owner of the signs Phil Hanna passed away and his son in law took over the signs.  His son in law Joe wanted a smaller independent company to take over the signs instead of a bigger company. he did some research about us online he realized we were the right fit for the signs.  He offered us a deal that we couldn’t refuse.
    How did you finance the acquisition.
    We came up with enough down payment to make sense for them to sell the signs.  The owner held a note for the balance.
    What are your future growth objectives?
    I see more and more people realizing the power of outdoor advertising, so we are optimistic about the growth opportunities around us.  We know we will continue to grow by helping as many people as possible grow their companies.
